    They changed the rule on college football kickoffs; a team can call for a fair catch on any kickoff that lands between the goal line and (I think) the 10 yard line (could be the 5 yard line, don’t remember), and get the ball advanced to the 25 yard line. The rule is meant to reduce injuries on kickoffs. (The rule is stupid IMO, and takes special teams play out of football to a greater degree, but it is what it is.)

    I was at the game, and it’s kind of sad that the period in which the Devils played the best was the one in which they were out scored by 2 goals (mind you that was because of the 2 empty-netters). They were pathetic at getting the puck out of their own zone in the first two periods. They were also terrible on faceoffs; I don’t know how many clean faceoff wins the Flyers had during the game, but it was a whole bunch. The only good thing the Devils did was block a boatload of shots; the Flyers probably should have had at least twice as many shots on goal in the first 2 periods as they actually did considering how they controlled the action. Not a good performance all-around today by the Devils excluding the blocked shots.

    I was at the game (and checking in on the Temple game from time to time - great comeback win for the Owls). There definitely was a solid Devils fan turnout, probably the best I’ve seen at a road game outside the NYC metro area (which mind you only encompasses about a dozen road games). Some of the guys at my end of the arena (upper level north end where the Devils shot twice) started “Let’s Go Devils” chants several times (and one “Rangers suck, Flyers swallow” yell) before being booed out by the Flyers fans.

    Devils home opener Thursday 10/11/2018 7:00 PM

    Count me as someone who likes the large number of weekday afternoon home games. As someone who comes from the DC area when I do go to games at The Rock, those games reduce the amount of time I can spend checking out other stuff in the NYC area, but they also allow me to get back to the DC area before the middle of the night. Also, they increase my transportation options to travel to/from games because using Greyhound or BoltBus to and from Newark Penn Station becomes a possibility, rather than only having Amtrak as an option.

    I feel the exact same way. The really bad thing about Las Vegas doing so well in their first season is that when they do go down hill, they'll lose most of their fans, an especially bad thing for that team because they are 1) not located in a hockey market, 2) located in a small market with very little secondary market population, and 3) located in a transient market where a lot of the people are originally from somewhere else and less likely to adopt the Golden Knights as their #1 team.

    That he did. His play after coming in early in Game 3 was probably the one positive to come out of this series for the Devils.

    That was a disappointing game and series, but the 2017-18 Devils have a lot to feel good about. They put the franchise back on the right track.

    Cory Schneider deserves a Purple Heart after that 2nd period.

    The Devils have had quite a few good scoring chances and have been able to set up in the offensive zone on the power play often since the latter half of the 2nd period.

    I don't think they are playing badly. This game reminds me of an older brother holding something up in the air just out of the reach of a younger sibling. For the younger sibling, that item is JUST OUT OF REACH, which makes the fact they can't get it extra frustrating. The Devils are like that younger sibling tonight.

    Frequent golf promos are weird during hockey games.

    I haven't seen eyes like that since the Chicago Bears' Mike Singletary 30 years ago.

    Tampa Bay's defense continues to frustrate the Devils tonight.
